The latest edition of The World Almanac and Book of Facts is out. In this book that's the perfect gift for a trivia buff, you'll learn things like:

  • How much do military members make?
  • What's the population of Aurora, Colorado?
  • What celestial events are coming up in 2018?
  • Which U.S. National Park System site received the most visitors?
  • What are the current crime rates in the biggest U.S. cities?

The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2018 is broken into nine sections:

  • Special Features: Year in Review
  • Economy/Business/Energy
  • Health and Vital Statistics
  • Personalities/Arts/Awards
  • Science and Technology

You don't have to spend a lot to get this comprehensive book of facts that are ideal for forming questions for a friendly trivia battle, looking up statistics for an article you're writing, or simply learning more about the world around you.

I have little to complain about, but I do try to look at all the pros and cons. One thing I will say is that the print is very small. If you have problems with small print, I highly recommend getting the hardcover edition that has larger print.
